at that guy and think he's really into coal? >> cenk: ha, ha, ha, romney is not into coal enough. if you elect an democrat we'll really be into coal. even into coal even more. climate change, mtv who gives a damn about that. and did it help? did your strategy a piece oil and coal, did it help? no, super pacs run by the coal and oil industries are running this ad against president obama any way. >> we can build on that rock for generations to come. but our current leadership in washington has taken us down a different path. a path paved by heavy-handed epa regulation. a path relying on facts not fuel. a path leading away from energy independence. a path that fails to recognize low-cost energy and desirable high-paying jobs. >> cenk: yeah, nonsense. the reality is president obama has been terrific in weakening regulations. let me give a quote from the "washington post." obama has actually finalized fewer regulations than either clinton or bush at the same point in their terms. thank you for being more right wing than those guys. how about the issue of drilling and coal? look at this, 241 million
are likely, i think that romney is going to win the election. romney only needs 269 to win. in one of those and it could happen, if you get a 269 it goes to the house and they line up state by state and they win because of all the states. one small point romney only needs 269 to get over the finish line. i think that he is going to get there. >> i think that's your wish there. >> thank you guys are coming in. >>> coming up the devastation hits one of the colleagues hard. the affects that it is having on a hometown. would cost our economy. newspapers called it "economically destructive." like allen's votes to give tax breaks to companies... that ship jobs overseas, his economic plan would... help big corporations, devastating the middle class. allen even voted against tax breaks for small businesses. virginia can't afford to go back to george allen. the democratic senatorial campaign committee... is responsible for the content of this advertising. a west virginia casino launching the biggest ad barrage ever. don't be misled. the washington post says question seven is just... common sense. it
romney, this election season, there are now 47 million people on food stamps. that's an increase of 14.7 million people or 46% since obama took office, and those people buy the smaller units at dollar general. say what you want about the president, the increase in food stamps is a huge tail wind for dollar general. and it's natural they would have some major stock-up business ahead of this storm. however, hurricane sandy is just icing on the cake for dollar general. i can't do any trades because they're too flawed but this investment, i like. i would be telling you to make this investment without the food stamp stock-up business from the storm. why am i such a big fan of this one? dollar general is the best of the dollar steers. best management, it's been able to deliver consistent double-digit earnings growth for the last several years. second, there's been trouble in the dollar store space recently. i think this industry is still a terrific fit for the times we're in. it ain't no boom here. an environment of high unemployment, slow wage growth, expensive gas prices, you better believ
clinton said electricking romney is -- electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. when you see co2 continue to go up and the global temperature goes up, levels off, and you can associate it with the natural cyclical pattern of the oceans and you look at the big picture, and also a lot of these people are just weather voyeurs. what if you've been studying since the day you were born? some of them just study it now. >> i was conceived during hurricane hazel. >> tmi. >> what is that? >> too much info. >> i'm just saying. your son is sitting here, too. >> he knows the story. >> all right. thanks, hurricane joe. we'll continue to track sandy's path and the destruction she leaves behind. you're looking at a live shot. this is lower manhattan in new york city. it is in the dark and at the moment it's underwater. we'll bring you the very latest developments plus tonight we have a race in seven days. more than 60 million people are likely to feel the impact of this storm. both president obama and mitt romney were forced to cancel campaign events. will this impact what happens with a week to
that president obama is going to increase taxes, where, where governor romney is not if he's elected president. that's an important issue distinction. coming into the last debate, the annenberg survey showed that the public thought that governor romney was more likely to take the country into a war, than was president obama. but the public also believed that president obama had gone around the world apologizing. now in the last debate, governor romney reassured that he was not as likely to take people into war as they had thought in that debate. and i think that was a callated strategy on his part. now, you uld y, "d it was illegitimate. you secretly know that he was more likely." but nonetheless, what we can measure is whether they get what he said he was going to do in the context. and i think that president obama responded to the apologizing around the world claim in a number of ways that were effective as well. and i think one of the things that we can say about debates making a difference is that, had there been debates in the goldwater/johnson election, had there been debates in the mcgo
of free and fair elections, but the romney campaign doesn't want voters to know they're there. gee, i wonder why. joining me now is scott who broke the story for think progress and joe madison, nationally syndicated radio host from sirius/xm the power. thanks to both of you for being here tonight. >> thanks for having me. >> scott, what can you tell us about your reporting? anything from the campaign? >> think progress obtained this document that is being used in romney poll watcher trainings around the state. we identified as many as 17 such trainings that occurred in the last month. not only are they being instrucked to sign in at the polls as a concerned citizen rather than mentioned -- or disclose any affiliation with the romney campaign or the republican party, they're also being given highly misleading and sometimes downright false information. for instance, they're told on one of the pages that -- given a list of ineligible voters. one of those is anybody who's ever committed a felony in the state. that's patently not true. wisconsin law allows for anybody with a felony, once t
will happen if mitt romney is elected. now, he was in connecticut campaigning for chris murphy running for senate against linda mcmahon in a hotly contested race there. here is what clinton actually said on sunday, quote, we're coming down to the 11th hour, we're facing a violent storm. it's nothing compared to the storm we'll face if you don't make the right decision in this election. so, you know, actually saying, bringing on romney as president of the united states will be more devastating than the full wrath of mother nature. >> yeah, but clinton can do that, he can be the attack dog and pit bull and do those things, but romney and obama can't say those things. >> i agree. clinton is going to be who he is. joe biden can't go out there and do it, he's the acting, now current vice-president, but bill clinton can play the fear game. this problem is the institutional left. they are looking at an election swinging tornadwards romney. charles: bill clinton is considered. >> considered a moderate. he only did what he had to do in office, to stay in office. 's he a political animal and his
. if a president romney is elected, even without a republican senate, with the basically the president votes in the house about the same and the senate within one or two votes being republican. you can get obama care overturned. there's four or five democratic votes in the senate to vote with him, 2014 elections right around the corner. they are always right around the corner. a lot of democrats coming up in 2014 that are in states that do not view obamacare as very favorable. be really easy for romney to pick off four or five democrats, probably not get to 60, but he probably get get to 54, 5 # 5, 56 votes through reconciliation to get rid about all of obamacare. two totally dramatic directions. we'll expand the government control of health care, which is what obamacare does, i don't care how you describe it, you end up with 40 million or 50 million people by the government. the government expanded dramatically its control over health care. it becomes the price setter because it's setting the price for the vast majority of customers, everything else will have to fall in line. we end up with
strategists for barack obama and mitt romney say early voting could be' decisive factor in the election. obama became the first president to vote early. he urged his supporters to exercise their rights before election day november 6th. obama made the same pitch in the 2008 election. votes cast early accounted for 30% of the total. >> all across the country we're seeing a lot of early voting. it means you don't have to figure out whether you need to take time off work and figure out how to pick up the kids. >> experts say the share of early votes this time could reach 35%. the figure could exceed 60% in swing states such as colorado and florida. obama visited six battleground states during a swing to win over undecided voter. he slept on air force one to save time. the president spoke before an audience of 15,000 people in the state of virginia. he told them that a republican policies had created an outflow of american jobs and caused the economic downturn. >> we can't afford to go backwards to the same policies that got us into this mess. we have got to go forward with the approximately see th

to get elected, so what does he do? >> i think the middle ground and sweet spot for romney is to be exceptionally sensitive to how things are going. but if people seem to be handling it as being marriage, even as the cleanup is taking place on the other side you can get back -- >> >> jennifer: but does it come at a worst time for him? >> clearly it freezes the campaign. that helps the president. secondly it gives the president a chance to demonstrate leadership and confidence. and then it usually translates to the benefit of the incumbent. people go back to what they know. this is a natural disaster. it requires government to be there to provide support and provide emergency services. one of the interesting things in this campaign has been the impact of government. i think at some level, the impact in how people view the role of government -- >> jennifer: and don't you think the sound bite that mitt romney said fema should be returned to the states or private sector. that's a crazy notion, and when you compare with people that are in trouble, and of cou
about the federal government's role in disasters. i agree with you. if mitt romney is elected, it would be a disaster. this man wants to have 50 states doing 50 different things. how can we have a country like that? >> bill: you can't. by the way, you would have some idiot governors right like there were idiot governors who refused to take stimulus money. >> like the one down in louisiana. >> bill: that's the guy i was talking about. bobby jindal. there are governors that refuse to take high-speed rail money right. >> caller: that's unbelievable because in europe, you don't have to fly everywhere. it would advance the country. i don't understand the retch can thinking. >> bill: i think sandy really proves that this republican thinking is not good for our country. it doesn't fit the needs of americans and it just shows how shallow and wrong mitt romney's whole philosophy is. just think about hurricane sandy. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." stages of a plan they hatched back probably at reagan's
says he's more concerned about sandy's impact right now than about next week's election. mitt romney also scrapping his campaign plans for today. the republican presidential nominee and his running mate paul ryan will hold storm relief events instead. their campaign is not saying what those events will involve. yesterday romney asked supporters at some of the rallies to donate to the red cross. >>> governor martin o'malley ordered all early voting stations in the state to close because of sandy. he has ordered early voting through november 2nd to make up for the days. the board of elections postponed early voting in the district today as well. >>> coastal communities are waking up to the heaviest damage this morning. >> erica gonzalez is getting a firsthand look on what kind of impact flooding had on dewey beach, virginia. erica, yesterday you were being swept away by the winds. it looks much calmer this morning. >> reporter: you know, it is much calmer, but the biggest difference this morning is it is about ten degrees cooler or colder this morning than it was yesterday. i'm shiveri
and to a lesser extent mitt romney made themselves be things that affect the election. but the campaign ceasing today does end the candidates most direct efforts to nudge the polls any further in one direction or another. for the record, here's what the latest polling stands now as the campaign stops. in term os of the national tracking polls, rasmussen has romney ahead by two points. politico has president obama ahead by one point. abc news and "washington post" say it's mitt romney ahead by one point. gallup has called off polls for the storm. here's how it looks in the swing states. in the swing state of ohio, a new local newspaper poll shows the race dead even. a new left-leaning poll outleft hampshire has president obama up in new hampshire by two points. a local university point by north carolina has it as a tie. a brand new cnn poll shows florida, mitt romney is ahead by one point. in colorado, an independent polling called arg shows mitt romney up there as well. that's the state of the race. couldn't be tighter. if there isn't much more campaigning to be done over the next few days that
. >> campaigning in ohio, mitt romney predicted to supporters his election would mean an increase in workers' take-home pay. >> the president does not have a plan to get america working yet. with a five point plan that will get more jobs and more take-home pay and that is what america needs and that is why we are joined elected. >> as romney vowed to create jobs, workers at a freeport, illinois plant set for closure under ownership by his former company bain capital, staged a walkout thursday, one day after 14 people, including the reverend jesse jackson, were arrested. workers have staged an encampment called bainport across from the sensata technologies plant to protest plans to move the factory to china, ending 170 jobs. a federal appeals court has rejected the group plan. his challenge of a funding ban in taxes. texas has sought to cut payments to planned parenthood and exclude it from a government funded health program for low- income women because it also provides abortions. the texas program offers cancer and health screenings as well as birth control to some 100,000 low-income women, about
election was mayor of salt lake city. he said he cut an ad for mitt romney because he thought did he a good job there. give us that perspective rocky. >> i did cut an ad with mitt romney because my dealings with him through the olympics he was a good, moderate, reasonable person very detail-oriented and he was really great for me to work with on the olympics. but you know, he shared a lot of his positions with me as he did with the massachusetts voters who is pro-choice, pro-gay and lesbian rights. i thought wow as a republican he could bring that party that was really becoming right wing, nutty, extreme back to the middle. but look what he has done. he has taken it further to the right than i think it ever has been before. i hate to say this about an old friend, but he has become a real flim-flam man in this campaign. >> cenk: shocking. now look, what we're talking about here is a perfect example rocky. is there something wrong with taking federal money to to run an olympics? i don't think so. we won the bid for the owe limp picks. but now he's saying federal money, that's not acceptable.
, florida tonight. >> in dayton, ohio, a week from the election, romney tried to retool a prescheduled political rally to what aides dub disaster relief event and charity concert. >> we have heavy hearts with the suffering going on. >> romney didn't mention the campaign, stayed off the main stage and spoke in front of the tables piled with donation. >> part of the american spirit, the american way to give to people in need. we have goods here. more coming in. we will box these things up. ♪ ♪ play me mountain music >> scheduled as a victory rally to inveigh rate voters for the sprint, country star randy owens performed but john mccain's appearance was scrapped. in a debate last year, romney was asked about cutting fema's budget and did not rule it out. he ignored reporters' questions about it today. romney political director has a memo suggest hag romney surge put pennsylvania in play and the president is on defense saying the expansion of the electoral map demonstrates that governor romney's momentum jumped containment from the usual target states and spread to deeper blue states t
the electoral vote. so we start with that, we do not elect the president we elect electors, the state can choose to designate the electors however they want. the electors for obama or for romney, but if a state wanted to the legislature could choose the electorate rather than having election. they would be voted out of office but they could do it. with those premises in place, the question is, can a state delay an election? yes but not for president. federal law has said you must choose your electors on the first monday after the first tuesday of november. this year, november 6. so the state of new jersey, where we live, for example, could delay congressional elections by a month because they felt candidates could not campaign because of the hurricane but it could not delay the presidential election since that is the date set by congress. so, we have to hold it on that date or hold a substitute for it, like a vote if the legislature on that date. >>neil: what is the likely hood that 20 states, says were affected by the storm in one way, shape or form, not that the entire state is affected by pow
here to talk about it. >>> and does anyone really have a grip on who mitt romney is? this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> well, with one week before the election, remember that? we've got lots of new poll numbers in the presidential race. let's go to the "hardball" scoreboard. we start in florida where a new cnn poll has mitt romney leading by one point, but a new ppp poll from florida has president obama up by one point. 49%, 50%. in ohio a new pp p poll has the president leading by four, 51%, 47%. new hampshire, a small state that may play a big role on election night. the new pp p poll has the president up by two there. in north carolina a new poll from elan university, shows the race tied, who would have thought that. finally to oregon, a state president obama won by 17 points in '08. the race is tightening there. it's down to 47%, obama, 41% for romney. we'll be right back. ♪ ooh baby, looks like you need a little help there ♪ ♪ ooh baby, can i do for you today? ♪ [ female announcer ] need help keeping your digestive balance? align can help. only align has bifan
, romney tied right before the election, and politico, the carl rove group, up at eight states including north carolina, not a good sign, and fascinatingly, they are not advertising wisconsin, karl rove thinks it's not going to happen for mitt romney considerably narrowing his options. >> what do you make, mike, of what we were talking about earlier? pennsylvania and minnesota attracting money from both campaigns and valuable time from president clinton? >> yeah, it's insurance by them, but i think you made a great point. the bill clinton in minnesota, an astonishing piece of resources. pennsylvania more just to keep it -- to keep the gap there from narrowing. but two places that obama campaign didn't want to be north carolina, certainly a place for the romney campaign, doesn't want to be. they would love to not have to worry about florida. we saw basically a tie there. they'd love to not be worrying about virginia. they're worrying hard about virginia. >> and north carolina too. mike allen, a look at the playbook, one week until election day. mike, thanks so much. >>> and governor chris
and pop romney if he got elected. laugh out loud. you can't kill big bird and instagram and get away with it. it's just a joke. but kind of got a life of its own that romney wants to kill instagram. >> bob: i read one of -- dana and i have both read this book. one of the best novels i read in a long time. >> kimberly: me, too. >> bob: "ghosts of manhatta manhattan." by dug bunch who happens to be the husband of our own colleague megyn kelly. great read. best thing i have read. novel that explained what happened in the housing crisis. i urge you to buy the book. terrific. >> kimberly: very talented. great book. >> greg: you never plug any book. >> eric: you do. >> greg: i have to plug my own book. >> kimberly: we have to read it. >> greg: forget it. >> eric: want to do one more thing? >> greg: when you see water in a house, it looks like fun. do you want to fill up your house with water when you were a kid? did you try. people forget about the salvation army. just text "storm" to 80888. it shows up on your phone bill. i don't know. i just did it. i only transmit information. i don't d
hoping romney will screw it up. in order to save obama's election. this little break here, in the storm, is helping obama, the media is helping obama. >> bob: i think that is a little bit unfair. obama has done a good job -- chris christie was full praise for president obama last night. romney did the right thing. romney campaign agreed to not attack the president in the next couple of days, which is very smart politics, if you will, but it's the right thing to do. >> kimberly: he's a gentleman. >> bob: and they both called off the campaign events which is the right thing to do in the effected areas. so far, the politics, i say obviously it benefits to the president. but romney has inserted himself -- >> eric: can i interrupt? this is absolutely going to benefit mitt romney, because romney was on, he was getting the momentum. he had the gallup poll increasing in his favor and still is. what this did, what the storm did is put evening on hold. froze everything in place. he gets the bigger momentum. importantly, the female vote. the women vote was going, he closed that gap completely. now
a week until election day, romney's plan to stay in ohio and cam faine today. it's close. the latest real clear politics polling average gives the president a less than two--point lead over romney around five or six points before the first debate. there are serious concerns about disruptions to election day because of sandy's impact on key states like ohio and virginia. legally he the presidential cam taken could be postponed. states have the power to set their own rules for elections but can't change date for a presidentleal election on their own. it seems unlikely that will happen. in the guest spot today washington course dents for the cleveland plain dealer sabrina eaton. sabrina, i'm sure i don't have to show you, but for our viewers let's put up a picture of the front page of your newspaper today. at the top of the page, hurricane disrupts lives and politics across the east coast. under the fold, presidential campaign stalled. i have to wonder, are ohio voters sort of relieved to have a break in the campaign coverage? are they anxious to get back to politics? >> well, i don't know t
sandy disrupting the campaigns of president obama and governor romney seven days until election day. the president distracted dealing with a national emergency. governor romney distracted trying to find the appropriate balance of campaigning in the midst of national catastrophe. fox news chief white house correspondent ed henry with our report. >> this is a tough time for a lot of people. >> after cancelling to more campaign events president obama headed to the red cross to continue the role of heeler in chief. >> there is no excuse for inaction at this point. i won every agency to lean forward and to make sure that we are getting the resources where they need to know where they are needed as quickly as possible. >> looking presidential in the final week of a tight campaign in a role that won -- one rare praise from governor chris christie who gave the keynote address at the republican national convention. >> she has been very attentive. anything that i have asked for his gun. i think the president publicly for that. he has done as far as i'm concerned, great job for new jersey. >>

for this election. everybody has been saying it and it's probably true. mitt romney probably hopes that the truth isn't going to find him in ohio. he's been a shape-shifter his entire political career. this shouldn't surprise us. and yet somehow he's taken it to a new level. the romney campaign attaches itself to untruth like a sexually aroused little dog on a visitor's leg. i mean, just starts humping away at these lies here. as you said, he makes the speech where he says that he read something somewhere about jeep going overseas to china. that's pointed out to him that's not true. chrysler points out to him that that's not true. so what does he do? doubles down with a tv ad. that's pointed out that that ad is not true. what does he do? triples down with a radio ad, too. it is just extraordinary, and the question is do ohioans, do americans, does the media tolerate this level of dishonesty from a presidential candidate? i hope not. >> lee iacocca, by the way, is not going to come on television and endorse that claim. i predict that right now. he's been retired for 20 years. he's not going to bac
the presidential election. >> you are watching live team >> y[ minto ] you know,e team those ads saying mitt romney would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme. so i looked into it. turns out, romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. in fact, he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother's life. this issue's important to me, but i'm more concerned about the debt our children will be left with. i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >>> today, we are finally getting a sense of how much devastation sandy caused in the area. this is laurel, maryland. they are under water. streets, baseball fields look more like streams. >> look at that. tony tull is live on the ground there with another look at the damage. what are we looking at there? that was a baseball field? you probably couldn't see it. tell us what you have behind you. looks like a tree over there. >> reporter: massive damage. we have been talking the damage all morning long. the next stage
the election. the romney campaign insists that they are in a position to be able to overtake the president in a number of these states. so, we're playing in part a game of spin. somebody is going to be proven right or wrong. we know that some of these states have tightened up from where thewere amonth ago. thin thatasusan said part of the issue is who is going to be able to get their voters out at this point, under what could be some difficult circumstances? >> woodruff: susan, how are you reading these polls right now? >> i'm struck over and over again by the damage that president obama did to his campaign in that first debate. it's like your mother always told you, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. in this pew poll that just out, more than a third of voters said their impression of governor romney was improved in that first debate. we know from the usa today gallup poll th the first debate had much more impact than the second and third debates. thought president obama won the second and third debates but it's the first debate that had such a big impression. anothe
